PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Every high school senior, college student and adult student who will be attending college during the 2016-2017 academic year needs to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to apply for federal, state and institutional financial aid.
FAFSA Day Massachusetts, part of the national College Goal SundaySM program, provides free help statewide to students and families looking to complete the FAFSA.
The 12th annual FAFSA Day Massachusetts is being held on Sunday, Jan. 31, at 1:15 p.m. at Berkshire Community College. Families are encouraged to visit www.FAFSADay.org to register and to see a list of what to bring.
The services are free and available to anyone attending college for the 2016-2017 academic year; low-income, first-generation students are especially encouraged to attend. A Spanish-speaking financial aid professional will be available.
FAFSA Day is staffed by volunteer financial aid and higher education experts available to provide families one-on-one assistance.
FAFSA Day is a nonprofit program sponsored by Massachusetts Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, MEFA, American Student Assistance, and USA Funds. More than 14,000 students have been served during FAFSA Day events.
